>> live, from the cbs bay area studios, this is kpix5 news. >> tonight, a driver on the run from the law hits a kid on a scooter and takes off. and we have just learned that boy has died. >> this happened at east 14th and ashland avenue. joe vasquez is there with the latest in san lean doe. >> reporter: you can see, investigators are still on the scene. i just got off the phone with a chp spokesperson who tells me what happened was around 6:00 this evening, they spotted a car driving wrecklessly. so they tried to pull it over, but instead, he sped up and right here he hit a 14-year-old boy who was riding his scooter
through the crosswalk. >> i saw the young boy crossing the street, and i heard the sirens and i believe it was a high speed chase. and the car came right when the little boy was in the middle of the street. he got hit. and then he flew in the air and landed over there by where the bus stop sign is at. >> what went through your mind? >> oh man, i was shocked. i couldn't believe it. i was, wow. i was shocked. as soon as i see him fly, i ran over to try to help him out. but there was not much i could do. i called 911 as soon as i got to where he was at. >> just so it is clear, was the chase in progress or had the police stopped the chase and the other car was still going? >> reporter: i believe the chase was still in progress because the car kept going and the sheriffs officer that was right behind the car also kept going. so i guess the chase was still in progress after the little
boy got hit. >> reporter: and in fact, chp says they tried to catch up with him but that driver got away and he is still on the loose right now. and in fact, officials are not yet releasing the name of that 14-year-old boy. reporting live, i'm joe vasquez, kpix5. >> meanwhile, in east san jose tonight, a car hit and killed a woman on barbary lane at south king road. the driver of that car stopped and was arrested. police have not said whether drugs or alcohol were factors. this woman is the 21st pedestrian to die this year in san jose. tonight, we have a better idea how incredible it is that a little boy survived falling off a bay area cliff. andria borba puts it into perspective for us in the children's hospital in oakland. >> reporter: liz, we have been talking about this number, 230 feet. the height this little boy fell off this bluff from. we wanted to give you a better idea of what he survived.
the rugged beauty of bodega head is breathtaking and likely terrifying. to get a feel for how frightening his tumble was, you have to change your perspective. >> reporter: the little boy fell roughly 22 stories. that is how far my photographer is off the ground right now. the only difference is i have concrete underneath me. not sand. >> we were just lucky. >> reporter: bodega bay fire was prepared having prepared for a rescue like this one a few days earlier. when they got to tiny sebastian, they heard the best sound of all. his cries. >> i'm thinking scream for me. hopefully you are alive. we get there he is breathing and moaning and it is a huge relief. >> reporter: sebastian didn't just have firefighters on his side, but mother nature. not only did he suffer a fall
onto a beach of the rough and cold pacific, the tide was out. >> if he had fallen into the ocean, he could have been washed out. >> reporter: just a short time ago, we spoke to sebastian's aunt jessica evans about the moments before he fell. here is what she had to say. >> and sebastian picked up a bigger rock and jamie bent down to pick up a rock. when she got up, she today up, she saw him falling. so, i mean, they were just throwing rocks. they were having a competition who see who could throw the furthest and sebastian slipped and jamie missed him. >> reporter: heartbreaking to hear. this little boy is in very rough condition, but he is expected to survive. he has lots of broken bones and
is very, very lucky to be alive. he is heavily sedated. still on a ventilator. they hope to get him awake tomorrow. live in oakland, andria borba, kpix5. >> a coast card helicopter that helped rescue sebastian is stuck in bodega bay tonight because of heavy fog. they are trying to figure out how to move it. police in colma say they arrested a woman who did this. terry elsy is the woman in the red there. she is knocking another woman to the ground outside nordstrom rack last week. the victim, natalie bree hajac. richardson said she followed her out there. natalie asked her to quiet down her child who was throwing a fit. >> she came to the side of me and told me not to tell her
child what to document do. i asked you very nicely to calm down your child just a little bit. >> natalie, also admits that she also told her to go to hell. the punches knocked three of her teeth loose. tonight, 49ers defensive end ray mcdonald says he is ready to move on. this is the first time we have heard from him since the da dropped the domestic violence charges. >> i know what kind of guy i was and the upbringing i have. i respect women. i knew the truth would come out. it was weighing on my mind a little bit. because you know. all this stuff that people were saying about me that i know wasn't true. it sucks man, it sucks having people saying this stuff about you when you know it is not true. i had to keep my mouth shut and let the whole process play out. >> prosecutors say there is not
enough evidence to show he assaulted his pregnant fiance. china made a breakthrough to cut greenhouse missions. president obama and china's president unveiled new targets in beijing. the new goal to reduce 26 to 28% by 2025 compared to the 2005 levels. earlier in his presidency, president obama pledged cutting emission levels by 17% by 2020. in about an hour-and-a- half, we human beings will try to do something in outer space that has never been done before. paul watches the skies for us tonight. he is aiming higher into the heavenning. >> much higher. there is a comet zooming by at 49,000 miles an hour. trying to paint this picture. 300million miles away from earth. and europeans are trying to land a spacecraft on the comet. the rosetta space probe has
been flying across the solar system the past ten years. in about 90 minutes, they are going to release a landing craft. once it is released, it can't be steered. that is fancy jargon for saying they are dropping it. the comet has to be in the right position for touchdown. scientists hope the probe will land and help us learn more about the composition of comets and how they react when they get close to the sun. >> the comets are mysterious objects in the night sky. we now know they connect the origin of the solar system with the origin of the planets. potentially with the origin of water on those planets, particularly earth, and perhaps even the building blocks of life. >> so, if all goes according to plan, it should take about seven hours for that landing craft once dropped to reach the comet's surfaceful it takes 28 minutes with rosetta, so everything has been programmed to happen automatically. if anything goes wrong, all scientists can do is watch.
we should know some time tomorrow if we humans dropped a landing probe on a comet. i hope they took ap math. >> thanks paul. inviable new video tonight of lava flows in hawaii flowing into the village of pahoa. it has eaten up one house already with many more in itself path. history has been made on the web. people flocked ali baba, china's version of amazon for singles day. it is an antivalentine's day in china. it raked in $9.3 billion and more than 278 million orders. this is by far, the biggest online shopping day ever. last year, both of our black friday and cyber monday sales pulled in a measlely $1.2

hurting the lesser known artists he working with. >> it comes down to the consumers. how are we consuming music? at the end of the day, who is buying music? nobody!
